Based on a Mexican salad I like to make, these lettuce wraps hug the creamy, meaty filling and keep the goodies wrapped up like a taco shell. When you are armed with easy keto recipes like this one, a ketogenic diet is simple, sustainable, and enjoyable!

Lettuce wraps with turmeric-infused ground beef. Ketogenic and low-carb.

The lettuce is very low-carb, holds together well and gives a nice crunch to the meal.

Dress up your ground beef

The ground beef is really the star of the recipe here, our daughter calls it “yellow meat” and requests it at least once a week.

Infusing ground beef with medicinal herbs and spices is an easy way to add variety and various nutrients to your diet.

There is a lot that can be done with ground beef – stir-fry, omelettes, meatza pie and more!

Simple cooking is the best for daily meals, I can add high-quality flavors to a pound of ground beef and have it ready in minutes. Using herbs is a good strategy for keeping your taste buds excited.

I wrote an entire chapter in our cookbook, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook, about herbs and spices, medicinal properties, DIY recipe blends, and even a homemade green powder.

Buy in bulk, save some cash

I promote purchasing in bulk whenever possible. This is a practice I employ as much as I can with local farms and regional sources. It is especially handy for ingredients you use often. We have bought our coconut oil in 5 gallon tubs for years now! I keep it sealed as a stool for the kids and scoop a small portion into a jar for use.

Source your meats as locally as possible. If you don’t have a local option, check out US Wellness grass-fed and grass-finished meats. They offer a packaged deal of 25 pounds bulk ground beef.

Say you want the bun?

If lettuce isn’t your thing, use a 5-ingredient Keto Flatbread as a tortilla like disc. I would adjust the portion size to make an extra large disc, big enough to stuff and fold like a taco shell. The original flatbread recipe is written for smaller flatbread or pancake sized rounds. A Cauliflower Tortilla could also be used as a shell to hold in your delicious turmeric infused meat. We have lots of good options as low-carb dieters!

  1. In the macros, “fat” was written twice instead of “protein”. I can’t wait to make some yellow meat! How integral to the flavor is onion, in your opinion?
